Question about Whirlpool GEW9250P Electric Dryer
All of a sudden my dryer stopped working. It powers on, but when I hit start it gives multiple beeps. Now I have changed the bulb in the drum and tried to check the thermal fuse. Not sure if it is blown or not, but I can't seem to remove the wires to replace it anyway. In the diagnostics mode when I opened the door there was no beeps or anything. I checked the door switch on the machine control, but to no avail. The E6 comes up in the diagnostic mode and the E7 when I push the cycle speed button. The drum light stays on when the door is closed, indicating a door problem right? Should I bother with the thermal fuse or wrestle with the door switch. My tech sheet isn't real clear in the door switch department.
Hehehe good luck deciphering that tech sheet. actually quite helpfull just all over the placeand youd need to know what the hell they are talkin about. but anyway, if your light is not going out, therers the issue, no need to worry about fuse if you cant get door closed.(as you try to push the switch with you finger does it "click" in and out??if not unplug or swithc off breaker, wiht a small screw driver you can pry the switch out(kinda has clips that expand when you push it in, so youll need to compress them to remove. the new switch will push right back in place part num 8283288 it'll come with wires attached no need to use them honestly the few times ive had to replace this switch, for one reason or other as im removing old switch it mysteriously popps out and begins to work, go figure
